these fast deploying units of marines fan out to these countries, fbi agents are being sent to libya to investigate the murder of the american ambassador there and three other americans were killed. the fbi. we think of the fbi as a domestic agency, it's the fbi that's part of the u.s. government that has the authority to investigate deaths of americans in all other parts of the world. fbi did it in the embassy bombings in kenya, in tanzania in 1998, and the "uss cole" bombing in 2000 and mumbai bombings in india in 2008 and now the fbi is investigating in libya or at least we're told they are on their way. the fbi being dispatched to libya is yet another reminder what happened in libya appears to be a different kettle of fish than what is happening at all the other embassies and u.s. sites around the world today. the attack that killed the u.s. ambassador in libya appears to have been a coordinated, military-style assault by well-armed men who arrived at the scene quite separately from any civilian protest. given the militant groups known to operate in the area of benghazi and the t
of the house intelligence committee, fbi man. thank you, congressman, for joining us today. your thoughts on the level of debate and the fact that frankly the republican candidate for president, took a stance and said that there was an apology from the -- from the administration and put it at the feet of the president, called it disgraceful when, in fact, that statement from the cairo embassy, whether it was worded well or not, came out six hours before these protests even started. >> well, i do think there's room for discussion in -- after we get through these troubling few days about maybe policies overall and those kinds of discussions and that's probably a fair debate to have in this upcoming election. what we should be focused on now, i think, is the fact that we lost a united states ambassador and what's key about this, we asked these folks to serve in very dangerous places. they are civilians there to represent the united states and just fundamentally try to avoid conflict. so the fact that these folks were deliberately targeted, they knew that the ambassador wouldn't be armed, is
the stove pipes are down, intelligence is red teamed, the fbi now has a national security branch, staffed by 10,000 people. i mean how could it be that people were learning how to fly planes and not land. these were the kinds of things they would look out for. and as bob mueller said in open session to us, we've had 20 attempts at the last year and every one of them has been stopped. i think that's good news. so we have learned. we have a counterterrorism center that specializes now in threats to the homeland. we have a director of national intelligence to provide coordination over the 16 different intelligence agencies. no longer are they their own spheres, they're part of a network. there have been changes and we have learned hard lessons. >> how important is the killing yesterday in yemen of the second in command al qaeda's second in command, al shirry. >> that hasn't been confirmed to the best of my knowledge. i don't know whether he is dead or not. but if he is, it's certain lay positive thing. over half of the al qaeda leadership has been taken out. the problem is, that they're repl
violent protest. 50 marines were deployed to yemen to secure the compound n libya, an fbi investigation into the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi under way. sunday, libyan and u.s. officials had two very different versions of what happened. >> the way these perpetrators acted and moved, this leaves us with no doubt that this was preplanned. >> what happened in ben gghazi s a reaction to what had transpired hours before in cairo. >> as you see, two different versions of what supposedly happened in benghazi. protests plead spread into the weekend, the romney campaign argued the crisis exposes a stark contrast between the two candidates. >> if we project weakness, they come. if we are strong, they are -- our adversaries will not test us and our allies will respect us. >> ambassador susan rice fired back yesterday on "meet the press." >> with respect to this i think, vacuous charge of weakness, we have des mated al qaeda. osama bin laden is dead. i spend every day up at the united nations where i have to interact with 192 other countries, i know how with the united states is viewed.
final answer will be available only once the fbi mpletes i inign. >>> spain is set to announce the 2013 budget today. expected to include deep public service cut yakz trying to off set one of the worst deficits in the euro zone. outrage over austerity measures touched off violent prosts in several couriesleentays acss ro s a ek at the markets as we get all up in your business this morning. karen cho is live in london. good morning. >> good morning. the key question for markets is when spain will request a formal bailout which puts a lot of pressure on today's ne conferce. get close look at the 2013 budget. what revenue and spending is going to look like? you mentioned froests on the streets. this tells you how difficult it at home for the prime minister to push through further austerity. there will be more austerity and more o tab tay th sshrime minister tries to push the measure that these are homespun, homegrown reforms rather than ones pressured about it euro zone. in terms of what to expect should be a new tax oversight body. we'l hear news about that limitations onartint wese t ac
. and that is pretty damn remarkable, remarkable work by the president, by the cia, by the fbi, by new york city police, by -- by our entire nation security apparatus. it's so easy for us to attack them. can we just stop today and thank president bush and thank president obama, thank our men and women of the cia, the fbi, and everybody that's kept us safe for 11 years? >> i think we could do that. i think we're all glad we haven't been hit again. we can never know, perhaps how many other attempts were thwarted by intelligence agencies. we did get lucky a couple of times and thinking of the underwear bomber, richard reed, the time square bomber, those were -- we got lucky in those cases. but on this day i think mostly of the families of people who died in the buildings. new jersey, 12 people in our town, a lot of kids who are now in their 20s were in high school or middle school at the time have spent the last 11 years without their dad or their mom. and those are the people i think about today. >> and you are narrating a discovery? >> discovery channel. >> it's an incredible story. >> unbelievable. >>
of the federal government that we need from the fbi to the faa. you can't possibly do all of those things. that was my problem. how does the math add up? so to me, he's still at war with math. and i think that's where "the wall street journal" editorial is quite a positive. how are you going to do these things? i believe this time is different. i think the american people really do want a plan. they want one from romney. they want one from obama. and i think they will reward someone who they feel has laid down a credible plan, and please, please, don't tell me it isn't going to hurt. there's no way we get out of this hole without working. they want it to be real. they want it to be fair. the wealthy pay more. everybody pays something. and they want it to be aspirational. they want it to be not just about balancing the budget, but making this country rich. >> doris kearns goodwin there is this appetite for substance for a credible plan but campaigns are still, in many cases, about style over substance. here's the week magazine and on the cover it says unveiling mitt 2.0 the gop convention'
that there were potential terrorist operatives. the fbi tracks people on a regular basis. what they are implying is that the al qaeda cell that committed the 9/11 attacks was identified in the united states and that was a reference in the may 1st pdb. that's why i want to see e that declassified. here's the point with the administration leading up to 9/11 9/11. the administration identified al qaeda as a threat. they didn't understand the urgency. in multiple meetings we had in the spring and summer, they accepted we have a to deal with al qaeda, but they did not appreciate how urgent a threat it was. we see the president's conversation. you had a little bit of that sense. so that was the issue. we were arguing in the counterterrorism shop. and as michael said, they came into office with a view of terrorism as a primpl through state sponsorship and the days and weeks after 9/11, there were plenty of conversations saying you sure iraq wasn't involved in it? we wrote a memo saying we analyzed the situation. iraq was not behind this attack. >> well we're going to be digging through this for the res
to make the cuts to farm subsidies a bit bigger than the cuts to, say, the fbi. $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction in which we pretty much don't make a single choice about what is and is not worth funding. that administration conference call today was happening because the administration by law had to release this almost 400-page document. it was very, very long. telling us exactly where these sequestered cuts would fall. their bottom line from the text of their report, quote, education grants to state and local school districts supporting smaller classes would get cut. after-school programs and children with disabilities would suffer. the number of federal bureau of investigation agents, custom and border patrol agents, correctional officers and federal prosecutors would be slashed. the federal aviation administration's ability to oversee and manage a nation's airspace and air traffic control would be reduced. hope you don't have to fly anywhere. the department of agriculture'sesagriculture's e efforts would be curtailed. hope you don't have to eat anything. environmental protection asw
potential terrorist operatives in the united states. the fbi tracks people on a regular basis. what eichenwald is saying the cell that attacked on the united states was ichd in the united states and that's what was referenced in the pbd. that's why i want that declassified. the administration identified al qaeda as a threat. they didn't understand the malt tud or urgency. they accepted, okay, we have to deal with al qaeda but they did not appreciate how big and urgent threat it was. when you see the president's conversation just then, you had a little bit of that sense. so, that was the issue. you had -- we were arguing in the counterterrorism shop, had you to elevate al qaeda at the expense of other issues on the foreign policy agenda. as michael said, they came into office with the view of terrorism as a prism through state sponsorship and iraq in particular. in the days after 9/11, there were plenty of conversations saying, are you sure iraq wasn't involved in it? it got to the point where we had to write a memo to the president saying, we analyze the information. iraq was not be
happened in benghazi, the fbi can't get within 400 miles there to examine the evidence which is already being destroyed, so it's going to be hard to make a case. what about this letter that you have sent asking for answers about what went wrong in benghazi? >> well i have the letter here with me. i could show it to you. i wouldn't change anything. let me be crystal clear as chairman of that committee, and i hope this gets out to other people who are listening about this. >> and i should point out i've got the letter here too. we've gone through it. >> republicans are working overtime to try to exploit a very normal, run of the course, admin strative letter that we agreed to on a bipartisan basis in our committee, simply to get some additional questions put in front of the state department that are part of their already existing investigation. this is not a challenge. it is nothing new. it is not something out of the ordinary. and i agreed to do it as a matter of bipartisanship because we thought these were important questions that people ought to be examining. >> but aren't you concerne

himself to the worst excesses of big brother. seth rosenfeld obtained previously indisclosed fbi records that reagan secretly reported people in the fbi that he suspected to communist activity. and he also asked them to spy on their 19-year-old daughter maureen living with an older, married policeman. one possessed as an insurance salesman and other interviewed a maid to get information back to her parents. the records released rosenfeld after a long and costly legal fight under the freedom of information act and we know so much about our government thanks to that law. >>> i want to find out what my nest guests think we should know for the week coming up. and you, chelsea, do the honors here. brought this. thank you very much, aloha. >> the most consequential thing in the world is happening in the south china sea, that gets no political discussion whatsoever. a massive, potential dangerous conflict going on between some very important countries like china, japan, south korea. hillary clinton trying to maintain the u.s. as a player in this. this is what american foreign policy is about in
. for people who haven't like dialed into it yet, explain the show. >> well, the format basically is an fbi agent and his unlikely partnership with a con artist and how they work together to solve white collar crimes. and i play the wife of the fbi agent, kind of the voice of reason, which most people do, right? >> absolutely. >> and you just wrapped? >> we just wrapped season four. you're kind of right in the middle of our season four, but we have our mid season finale next tuesday. >> we've talked about this a little bit. we're not going to focus on what happens live because that's what my producers want to show us slow dancing and we're not going to do that. >> oh, we are. >> seriously, can we explain something as long as the video is up there? that was supposed to be prom dancing. that's not how we dance. everyone was saying i'm a terrible dance. >> that's awful. we did that on purpose. >> usually i do the -- it was our first dance. that was a couple months ago, by the way. >> i think we're good. >> but just your evolution, people, they see you, you've grown out of of the kelly role. >>
understand that a team of fbi agents has arrived in benghazi and they have begun their investigation to try to determine who was responsible for the attack on the u.s. consulate that killed ambassador stevens and three other americans. we know that they will be sifting through the rubble and ashes at the u.s. consulate and identifying individuals who may have played a role in that assault. we also understand that u.s. intelligence agent sits have deployed their assets across the country to try to pick up any intelligence that can help in that search. all indications right now according to libyan officials is this is a pre-planned attack. they have identified a few individuals. four are in custody of the libyan government. they believe these individuals may have some information that may be of value as to who is responsible for the attack. they also say they have several others under the libyan government surveillance. right now though all fingers are pointing to at least one militant group here that is closely affiliated with or at least inspired by al qaeda. that group though denies it pla
-- >> this benghazi story by the way is a huge story. right now dee dee myers the fbi won't even go into benghazi because it is so dangerous which leads you to wonder why they didn't listen to warnings before the attack and before our u.s. ambassador was killed. this is one of those issues and i think charles krauthammer said it perfectly today in "the washington post" that if mitt romney actually knew how to put forth an argument. >> right. >> he could really be grabbing attention. >> one of the problems was he jumped out ahead of this and politicized it in the hours immediately after the attack which discredited him in the media term as a spokesman for the other side. >> it was -- krauthammer said he could have done it so much better. >> and established himself as an alternative voice. he didn't do that and hasn't been able to do that. as a press secretary it is a very uncomfortable position. >> you get elements of al qaeda, you get leon panetta saying it's not al qaeda. this is an absolute mess. and it shows real negligence on the administration's part. >> joe, listen. this also tells you a lo
